Healthy Community Healthy You – Sunglasses – Shade for your eyes

Megan Johnson McCullough –We wear sunglasses to keep the bright sunshine out of our eyes. Besides this reason, many wear them as a popular accessary. The truth is that besides what brand or what style, we need to be wearing these shades. Whether the cheapest one-dollar pair or the most expensive brand in the store, sunglasses should be part of your attire.  

Our eyes are actually sensitive. Their exposure to the sun’s rays can be damaging. The best eye care is
wearing high quality glasses that protect 100% UVA and UVB. Glasses should also fully cover the eye
area, with wrap around lenses being the best type. Polarized glasses should be worn when out around
water. This will help protect against the glare. The skin around the eyes is especially sensitive and nearly
10% of skin cancer is near the eye area. Sunglasses also protect the skin around the eye. Cataracts and
glaucoma can also be the result of long-term eye exposure to sunlight. Sunlight worsens the symptoms
of these conditions, which could lead to blindness. UV rays can also speed up the process of developing
macular degeneration. This occurs when the retina (specifically the macula) starts to degenerate. Even
on cloudy days, sunglasses should be worn. Even when the sun isn’t visible, UV rays aren’t still in full
force.  

The sun glaring into the eyes can also cause and trigger migraines. Wearing sunglasses helps reduce eye
strain and fatigue. You don’t have to squint which means you can see better. Sunglasses should be worn
anytime outdoors. This is true around water, snow, and sand. Snow reflects 80% of UV rays. Getting
sand in the eyes can cause scratches and permanent damage. Being exposed to wind can also irritate
the eyes.  

About 73% of adults wear sunglasses and about 58% of them make their children wear glasses too. It is
the cumulative exposure that eventually leads to damage. Some people never leave home without
them, while others don’t really mind the sun. Some people just simply forget. We are all at risk to eye
damage from the sun, however, those with blue eyes even more so than those with brown eyes. Even
the eyes can get sunburnt, which happens when the eyes are bloodshot after the day at the beach or in
the snow. Surfer’s eye can happen when out on the water too long and the eyes itch and swell.
Depending on where you live can also contribute to extra UV exposure. San Juan, Puerto Rico has the
highest number of days with the most sunshine while Honolulu, Miami, Tampa Bay, and New Orleans
follow after.  

Add a little style to your ambience and wear a pair of sunglasses. You can add some zest to your attire
while doing something good for your eyes at the same time. We want to live to see what life has to
offer, and our eyes are the windows to that goal.
